8:21 pm
might have the chance of winning right now i'm going to check it for myself. so it's thirty. standing hours of the gym i'll be as trainee louise she doesn't know if she'll ever have enough money to go to the championships but she never loses hope. maybe it is an incorrect comparison but sport is like a swamp for me once you get into there's simply no turning back i tried to stop but i can't live without it and they will continue hoping that one day we will be recognised by the public. it seems like kook asian women are following hard on the successful heels of their man who take many of the world's models in almost all types of wrestling and with girl's hands seemingly determined to break the stereotypes we could soon see more and more high hills making their way into the

8:25 pm

8:28 pm
to keep. talking of working harder i might have to put in a few more hours myself. ok so i probably couldn't even beat these kids at a game of tennis but that's because they're out here every day practising driven on by heroes like maria sharapova oh maybe because i haven't mastered the all important ground. up. that was tom barton squeaking forty square and you can check out more news and i catch invaders on our website that's not a dot com like rev up for the fifteenth is something i can show in moscow where it and the wacky and me it's a fast and furious at the annual motoring about which has opened its doors to the public dole son alive. and gold tiger cub abandoned by his mother has become the main attraction at
